Just a Game is the third studio album by Canadian hard rock band Triumph, released in 1979. The album contains their first big hit, "Lay it on the Line" and the near Top 40 hit "Hold On".

Artwork[edit]

The vinyl LP version of the album featured a sleeve that folded open to reveal a board game (though later pressings just contained a regular vinyl sleeve without this.) According to a Rockline interview, the board game was Rik's idea, but Mike was the one who actually designed it and decided to make it impossible to win.

The front cover of the album revealed a futuristic world where every symbol depicts a song featured on the album.
